Babes In The Kitchen: One Pan Shrimp Fajitas

Although we love eating at all of the amazing restaurants in this city, sometimes there’s nothing better than cooking something quick, easy and tasty at home. You probably already know we’re a bit obsessed with latin food & anything Mexican; so you can always find us at home testing recipes that involve spicy ingredients and guac 😉

You might have caught us making this one the other night and sharing it on our Instagram stories. Here’s the full recipe,


  • 1 pack of whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 lbs shrimp (if you’re vegetarian you can swap for sliced portobello mushrooms)
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Cilantro
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole


Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Wrap the whole wheat tortillas in foil and place them on a corner of the baking sheet.

Add the sliced bell peppers, red onion, and shrimp to the baking sheet and season with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder and lime.

Toss all of the ingredients on the sheet to coat evenly.

Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes (depending on how hot your oven is, it may require a few additional minutes), flipping the shrimp halfway through. You’ll know the shrimp is cooked once they turn pink.

Serve your fajitas with the warm tortillas, salsa, guacamole, cilantro, and lime.
